Both the cultural and the administrative capital of Northern Ireland, Belfast is quickly becoming a tourist hot-spot for those looking for a weekend away, a vacation for taste-testing liquors and beer, or a holiday spent tracing family roots. Belfast is known for having a raw, unspoilt feel unlike the tourist-overwhelmed city of Dublin, the capital of Northern Ireland's neighbour the Republic of Ireland. Sights to take in whilst in Belfast include the City Hall, Saint Anne's Cathedral, Belfast Castle, and the Stormont Parliament Buildings. Further afield are the Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle and the villages of Hillsborough and Bangor, all easily reached by car.
Belfast is serviced by two airports, the George Best Belfast City Airport (located on the harbour, in the north-eastern suburbs of Belfast) and the Belfast International Airport (approximately twenty kilometres to the north west of Belfast in between the towns of Killealy and Aldergrove). George Best Belfast City Airport is used predominately by low-cost airlines such as BMI, FlyBe, Ryan Air and Manx2; Belfast International meanwhile is serviced by Aer Lingus, BMI-Baby, EasyJet, Fly Globespan, Jet2.com and Manx2 amongst others. The Belfast City Airport is a single terminal complex with departures and arrivals occurring on the ground floor. Car hire is available from the desks positioned between the entrance and exits, Avis, National, Hertz, Europcar and Budget all operate from this location. Belfast International also offers car rentals from these companies, all of which are represented in the arrivals hall.
